  • February: Mapping Time and Space.

     

    The Miami International Map Fair (February 1st-3rd) celebrates its 25 anniversary this year. Hosted by the HistoryMiami Museum, this is the largest and longest running map fair in the Americas and is an exceptional opportunity to enjoy first hand rare antique maps, rare antiquarian books and intriguing atlases from around the world that shed light about history, fantasy and misconceptions associated geography and territoriality. Securing the continuity line with preceding institutions that have been the landmark of contemporary art in the Magic City, The Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM)  is celebrating 35 years of art and culture on February 7th. The special birthday that pays tribute its predecessors, the Center for Fine Arts (CFA) and Miami Art Museum (MAM), is also the PAMM’s promise of commitment to the 305. Also at PAMM (January 31st) and as part of Scholl Lecture Series, Liliana Porter will adventure into the motivations and process of one of her most ambitious projects to date, El hombre con el hacha y otras situaciones breves – Venecia 2017, currently on view at PAMM.

    Exploring poetics of space, borders and the symbiotic relationships between the self and the other, stand out the solo shows by local artists Carola Bravo, Luis Garcia Nerey, Dominique Labauvie, and Yanira Collado. Open at Bernice Steinbaum Gallery (2101 Tigertail Ave. Coconut Grove, 33133/ 305-573-2700) until February 17th, Inhabited Structures, is a compendium of video-installations by Venezuelan-born Miami based artist Carola Bravo. Exploring archetypical cannons (Golden Mean, Vitruvian Man), this body of video art continues her personal exploration on the theme of the immigrant experience. Shifting Lines, by Luis Garcia Nerey, opens on February 6th at the  ArtCenter/South Florida. Exploring cyclical patterns, Nerey’s immersive environments transform the physical space into an existential journey into ourselves. Opening on February 19th, at Mindy Solomon Gallery, Dominique Labauvie’s Urban Beings explores “urban-ness”. The gestural quality of her linear, defying gravity sculptures, opens new interpretations to the men and its environment. Penumbras, by Yanira Collado, is an evoking site-specific installation delving into architectural surroundings and memory. The exhibition runs until March 10th at Under the Bridge Art Space (12425 NE 13th Ave. North Miami/ 305-987-4437). The Lowe Art Museum is hosting James Prosek: Contra Naturum/Against Nature. The exhibition, running from February 28th to June 9th, is a critical commentary on South Florida’s rapidly changing ecosystem.
